That is correct Sunita.  Now that we've explored the mismatches, I thought it appropriate to start quantifying the level of the spurs caused by these mismatches.

Re : Interleaving Spurs: Letís Look at the Math
There are several challenges to look out for while interleaving ADCs.  Spurs appear in the output band that outcomes from the inadequacies related with inter leaving ADCs.  The deficiencies are essentially misalliances between the 2 ADCs that are interleaved.  There are 4 elementary misalliances that outcome in spurs in the production of band.  These are gain mismatch, offset mismatch bandwidth mismatch and timing mismatch.

As an engineer it is always rewarding when one can calculate an expected result and see the measurement in the lab line up with that calculation.
In Part 1, our blogger looked at how many clocking products specify the phase noise of the device but don't specify jitter. In the second part, he offers a real-life example.
Many clocking products specify the phase noise of the device but don't specify jitter. Let's take a look at how we can go from phase noise to jitter.
One of the most critical areas on an ADC that can affect performance is clock noise. Good layout and routing techniques coupled with an optional filter can do wonders in improving key specs.
There are many ways in which noise can enter an ADC or signal distortion can occur. We look at some of these, including aliasing.
